Verso 13

Reverse side of acrylic painting on unprimed canvas. 36 x 24 in.

The underlying process and brushstrokes surface partially intended themes that surprise me, and hint at truths about painting of which I was unaware.

Verso 12

Reverse side of acrylic painting on unprimed canvas. 36 x 24 in.

I think of the Verso paintings as a continuation of the vanishing point of perspective – through the canvas and out into the light of day for the first time. The application of paint has subtle, yet profound differences that the casual viewer will not notice, but that would baffle an art conservationist.

Exploring Inside Out: New Work by Scott Rummler

Painter Scott Rummler is using a reverse painting technique he calls Verso. This allows him to give the abstract landscapes and sky scapes a unique perspective.

This is a mono print style of work that is further distinguished by his use of vibrant color.

The result of this serves to draw in the viewer as they see both the familiar and the unknown. Ultimately the work satisfies for this very reason.
